Following a string of supply deals and new construction projects, Praxair recently announced further expansion.
The North American based firm has begun supplying BP’s refinery complex in Whiting, Indiana, with hydrogen from its new hydrogen facility. The two steam methane reformers offer a combined capacity of 200 million standard cubic feet per day. BP plans to use the hydrogen in the production of ultra-low sulphur gasoline and diesel fuels.
The Indiana addition augments Praxair’s 40 other worldwide hydrogen production facilities. The plant was completely designed, engineered, procured and built by Praxair’s hydrogen engineering group.
Dan Yankowski, President of Praxair’s Global Hydrogen business unit, commented, “This facility demonstrates Praxair’s world class hydrogen plant design and construction capabilities, using advanced construction techniques and the latest energy-efficient technologies.”
